Feb 23rd, 2016: Tapestry

No, not the Carole King album kind, the hang on the cold stone castle walls kind.
Pictures in fabric, Knights on horses, bucolic landscapes or a colorful Mandala, rugs too nice for the floor.
Or in this case copies of photographs by Jill Draper.



Quote:
Jill paints the landscape onto padded bridal satin or pure silk with fabric dye which she fixes with heat before heavily embellishing the material with stitches to create depth. She uses household cotton or Terylene and picks from her thousands of colours applied with a sewing machine or darning hoop and hand sews special detail with pure silk.

She sews for around six hours every day and relies on natural light to distinguish between the hundreds of similar shades. Taking care to limit her hours is vital as the intense bursts of concentration required can make her nauseous.

Jill works as a full-time embroidery artist and has sold hundreds of pictures through galleries and as private commissions for between £500 to £3,000 for a piece.

Certainly would make a special keepsake from that cherished photograph.

OMG. I know these show landscapes, but if'n I had the money I'd so get one of the photos of Diz and me.
I'm lucky that I have the original artwork painted by Case of Dylan and Diz.

The good thing about cats is they don't get jealous of photos of your previous cats. So if I ever get another, it won't find it creepy. Men might, but I've sworn off them for Lent... Lent 2020 that is.
